If you see that any dish was pleasant to visitors more, others, it is better to inform then it.
The Great value has observance of behaviour key rules by all. Transplanting visitors, help them to sit down conveniently. Chairs for ladies of the man should remove. To women the first submit dishes.
If food moves to individually each visitor, it put precisely against sitting, on the right side of the right hand.
The Snack submitted in salatnikah, on mnogoportsionnyh dishes, place whenever possible on the left side of sitting at a table, and drinks from the right.
